Michael Kenna :: Images of the Seventh Day

March 8th, 2015

Episode 80 of 330 episodes

Michael Kenna is certainly one of the most successful contemporary photographers. His work is shown in exhibitions, museums and galleries around the world. Images of the Seventh Day is a catalog for an exhibition of the same name done in Italy back in 2010. As most of Kenna's books are thematic and relative to his series based projects, Images of the Seventh Day is different. Produced for the exhibition, this is a full career retrospective showcasing some of his earliest work going back to 1977. We have covered Kenna before on the show, but I think it would be fun to revisit him in a new light through some of the rare images in this book. The interesting thing to look at is the influence of Bill Brandt in Michael Kenna's early work. We see how this transformed over the years to Kenna's own style. Also notable here are some abstract images and still-life work that Kenna is not really known for. These images are beautiful as well and its interesting to see how Michael Kenna has incorporated this type of image into his larger landscape work.
